Our private guide will also accompany you to the Straw Market and to the Old Bridge (Ponte Vecchio) built 700 years ago! During your Florence tour for Families with your guide you will learn all about medieval Florence with its history, culture and traditions. One such medieval/renaissance practice is the art of handmade paper-making. On request we will be delighted to organize a private family hand marbled paper class where parents and kids will learn this ancient tradition from the 17th century from a Tuscan “Master”. It will be the perfect way to top off your Florence tour for kids.
